Audio-Technica microphones capture audio at the Youth Olympics

A variety of Audio-Technica microphones were chosen to capture both live and broadcast audio at the Youth Olympic Games, which took place between 6-18 October in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The Japanese manufacturer has a longstanding tradition of providing mic solutions for high-profile athletic events.

The Youth Olympic Games, held every two years (Winter and Summer games staggered in years opposite the adult games), are an international multi-sport event organised by the International Olympic Committee. Buenos Aires 2018 was the scenario for 32 sports and 36 disciplines and saw the debut of karate, sport climbing, breaking, roller speed skating, futsal, kiteboarding, beach handball and BMX freestyle events.

A wide selection of Audio-Technica microphones were employed, including BP4071 and BP4073 shotgun condenser microphones, the AT899 subminiature omnidirectional condenser lavalier model and BP4001 cardioid dynamic microphones (handheld, for interviews).

“We are pleased to be participating in the technical setup at the Buenos Aires Youth Olympic Games,” said Audio-Technica vice president, professional markets Michael Edwards. “We know that these audio professionals need the peace of mind that can only come from dependable products, and we are proud to be a name they turn to for these high-profile events.”
